Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Stolen Laptop Recovery!
One of the first prison inmates released under the controversial Senate Bill 500 parole-reform law was arrested Wednesday and charged with two felonies, including felon in possession of a firearm, authorities said.
Mark Ouellette, 23, who told police he was homeless, was paroled on Nov. 1, 9 months before his maximum release date as required by the new law. On Nov. 5, he failed to make contact with his parole officer, who issued an arrest warrant for Ouellette.
Early Wednesday afternoon, police arrested him at the Taco Bell on South Willow Street. He was arrested after a Cilley Road homeowner recognized the laptop computer case Ouellette was carrying. The man had reported the laptop stolen from his home less than an hour earlier, said Manchester police Sgt. Dana Langton.
